I wish I could adequately describe the smell in my home... mmmm... garlic, potatoes, onion, celery, carrots... The very best part of this yummy smell... I have nothing to do with it.
Nope... I'm not cooking today. Instead Emme (age 11) is. She's making a soup recipe that she and her friend, Korah, created Friday evening. By adding a little of this and tossing in a little of that, the two girls concocted a very delicious dish that Emme is now sharing with us.
Yesterday, seven year old Ellen made me scrambled eggs for breakfast and we both declared them to be the best scrambled eggs EVER! I'm not sure what it is about scrambled eggs but it is the dish that all three of my kids first learned to make on their own.
Eric, age 13, has a few recipes that he has created and will cook for the family. It seems like it has been a little while since he's made his signature dish, Creamy Chicken Noodles... I think I may have to ask him to make that again....
Tonight, as I sit in my pj's watching NFL and smelling the delicious scents from the kitchen, I am very grateful for children who cook and who like to cook!
